Sociotechnical analysis based on mining software repositories

Metric Miner.

We are developing an infrastructure to mine and analyze sociotechnical data from software repositories.


Collaborative Environments on the Web


We are developing an infrastructure and a methodology to conceive and build collaborative environments on the Web 2.0. Our approach is based on software components and on the 3C collaboration model. Some of the award-winning projects we are developing are being conducted in partnership with researchers from IME (Math and Statistics Institute), FAUUSP (Architecture and Urbanism Faculty), and ECA (Communication and Arts School), gathered in a research center called NAWEB.
